We enjoyed many of our classic favorite Minocqua sites and destinations throughout the week.
Dinner at The Thirsty Whale:
Shopping in Downtown Minocqua (where I snagged a handcrafted dragonfly coffee mug to remind me of the two times I got smacked in the face with a dragon fly while cruising on my dad's boat):
The Beacon's Swimming Pool:
The Lumberjack Breakfast at Paul Bunyan's Cook Shanty:
Even though rain threatened to ruin our last few days, it cleared up in enough time for us to enjoy Friday night's ski show:
We also took in a few newer sights this year as well. Because of the impending rain one afternoon, we decided to hop into the truck and drive north a short distance to Boulder Junction. We ended up dodging the rain and enjoyed a sunny afternoon complete with ice cream cones!
|Olivia fell asleep in the truck and remained asleep almost the whole time while Ben carried her. Luckily, she did awake in enough time to enjoy her ice cream cone!|
On the way back to Minocqua that same day, we finally made the stop to behold the world's largest penny in Woodruff:
Basically, we just had a fun and relaxing (at times) week being together as a family!
